Return to the Garden of Allah

16 May

Allah

Errol is mentioned a few times in this article about the Garden of Allah. For example: “The inveterate womaniser Errol Flynn initially shared a villa with British star David Niven, but liked to return to the Garden in between marriages so he could misbehave freely.

Flynn had a particular seduction technique at the Garden — his villa faced the pool and, every morning, his secretary would place a bottle of champagne with two glasses on a table beside the prettiest female sunbather.

The actor would later emerge looking immaculate and ask the lucky girl if she would share the bottle with him. Veteran residents liked to bet how long it would take him to lure the woman back to his villa.”

    Okay, zacal, now I must go see it. It’s about three hours up the Florida Turnpike from me, so I’ll need to bring a well-iced cooler for the champagne:

    I’ll play some Don Henley & Sheryl Crowe on the way:

    What?? They have a Garden of Allah recreation at Universal Studios? Strangely enough, they also appeared in a recent movie I watched last night, “The Gangster Squad”.35kpt08.png
